Another beautiful and sunny day in Vancouver. Officially, it was only 13C (55.4F) but it felt much warmer. On a day like this it is a sin to stay at home. So we went to Rice lake in Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve in North Vancouver, which is, so to say, our neighbourhood.
Place is perfect. Actually, would be perfect if there were less people and screaming kids. Trail is easy and only about 500 meters from a parking lot so access is not a problem. But we managed to find a quiet spot and spend some time sunbathing and watching this beautiful nature.
There was a small flock of mergansers slowly floating on the surface of the lake, with chicks learning how to fish. Then San noticed two quiet beholders :eyes: Sitting on top of a tree, two bald eagles spent some time trying to spot some easy food :chef:
My camera is weak so this was the best I could get from the place we were.
The stillness of the lake is amazing. Sometimes there were no ripples and reflection was perfect.
But mountain tops are still under the snow, reminding us that spring has just begun. Fresh breeze made my hands cold inside the forest. It was time to go home.
